lookup with dropdown.selected.value

I have a table which i have imported from excel called Product_Type


In my powerapp i have a dropdown box (dropdown1)


I have a lookup like this:

lookup(Product_Type, 'Product Type'="Coating Type",xxxxxxx)

(the name of the first column in my table is Product Type, and one of the rows is Coating Type)


If i change xxxxxxx in the above for the name of the column i want to cross reference in parenthesis, I get the result that i want.


Howevever, is it possible to replace xxxxxx with dropdown1.selected.value?


When I try, the lookup returns the selected value of dropdown1.
